We don’t fit in. We stand out. Explore family fun in Oakland from our side.

Oakland may be known for its hipness, but it’s also home to world-class attractions, sports teams, restaurants and parks that will suit any family. Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, Oakland will inspire every family.

Oakland Fun from Ali's Side

Ali is a kid with a bright spirit, genuine curiosity, and an excitement for the fun things to do in Oakland. Growing up in the Bay Area, he loves to sing, dance, be silly, and loves bedtime stories, like those at Children's Fairyland. He also enjoys visiting other attractions, such as the Oakland Zoo, the Chabot Space & Science Center. He also plays a game called “Vegan World," and pretends he’s the secret owner of a world-renown vegan restaurant (we suggest you try Vegan Mob or Souley Vegan, here in Oakland!). From food to attractions, there is no shortage of ways to have fun with the family in Oakland!
